Matt Hardy on Steve Austin and the Ring Of Honor case

The Extreme Life Of Matt Hardy brings always interesting topics, and this time Hardy talked about Austin, his performance at Wrestlemania and his relationship with him “I mean, I loved it, I was so happy Steve got that moment.

Steve was always great to me and my brother,” he said. “But he was always really cool with me, we had a great relationship. I was so happy to see that moment, he looked great, he looked like a million bucks. And I am so glad he got to have a match in 2022, and it was constructed in the right way where he looked great in it.

“I had texted him later that night and had got to talk to him later on. I was so happy for him, and no one more deserving, in my opinion, than Stone Cold Steve Austin”. - Hardy said, as quoted by wrestlinginc.

Ring of Honor adventure

Matt Hardy also recalled his adventures in Ring of Honor and the role of Steve Austin in everything.

“I still kind of did the character. But I feel like they just promoted us more as The Hardys, as opposed to Broken Matt and Brother Nero. But the thing that I was going to say, shortly after I had gotten that letter. And I want to say it was out on the internet.

A little bit before that match, I got a call from Stone Cold,” Matt said. “He said, ‘hey, what’s going on, man? What’s going on with this deal with the gimmick, are you thinking about taking that to Vince? I love that sh*t, man.

It’s f***ing different, and crazy, it’s over like hell.’ He was just so cool about sh*t, the way he was talking. “He said, ‘that’s badass, man. What’s the deal now, you guys are out in Ring Of Honor? Are you thinking about taking it back to Vince?’ I said, ‘well, we’ve kind of talked about it, man.

We will see. It’s not really his cup of tea I don’t think, how extreme we were able to go with it in TNA.’ He said, ‘hell, man, that’s so great, you guys reinvented yourself and it got over, I love that sh*t, I love out-of-the-box thinking.’ And that was the hugest compliment, so great, and so cool. That’s been Steve the whole while, he’s always been so cool”.
